Bentzen Financial is pleased to announce that W. Campbell Mears, CPA, CSSC has joined the company, effective July 2, 2018. Bentzen Financial has worked tirelessly to become the beacon of ethics in an otherwise controversial market-space. It’s rare to encounter someone with the level of integrity Mr. Mears demonstrates, so adding him to the company simply made sense.
Mr. Mears brings 25 years of structured settlement experience to the company. He has held senior positions at leading firms in the insurance industry, including AIG, Cambridge Galaher Settlements, and Crowe Paradis Services Corporation, and he was co-founder and CEO of StructureOnline, a provider of Internet-based structured settlement management systems. In 2010, he joined the factoring industry. His significant experience and expertise will help serve structured settlement annuitants whose financial needs have changed post-settlement and will greatly enhance Bentzen Financial’s unique capabilities.
“I’m excited to join Bentzen Financial because Rhonda and the team share my strong beliefs about factoring,” said Mears. “Structured settlements are meant to protect people affected by injury, but the needs anticipated at the time of settlement can change as life goes on. Factoring is a valuable tool to address these situations, but it must be provided as a consultative service that helps annuitants balance current and future needs. Factoring should be done with the same care, attention, and expertise that is used to put structured settlements together.”
Mr. Mears holds a BA from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT and is a Certified Public Accountant. He earned his Certified Structured Settlement Consultant designation from the National Structured Settlement Trade Association (NSSTA) at the University of Notre Dame. He is former co-chair of the NSSTA Marketing and Technology Committees.
